Bowen Therapy is a very dynamic soft tissue therapy that is effective in treating a wide variety of conditions. Working to re-hydrate and balance the consistency of Fascia or Connective Tissue (which envelopes all other body tissues) it can influence and have a positive effect on muscles, nerves, organ systems, joints etc.
When the fascia becomes dehydrated through injury, ageing or overuse it can create pain, stiffness, immobility and diminished healing response in the body.
Bowen reactivates a normal hydration in this tissue and and by working with Trigger Points, Meridians and Acupuncture sites simultaneously, the body can really “wake up” and begin a healing process greatly relieving both new and old injuries or conditions.
Some conditions assisted by Bowen are:
- Back, neck & shoulder pain
- Girthy-ness or trouble softening under saddle
- Shortened strid
- Headaches (yes many animals get them too)
- Joint pain
- Tendon and ligament problems
- Sporting/performance injuries
- Pain based behavioural problems
- General maintenance of peak performance condition
